I didn’t initially want a daughter first. At least, I didn’t think I did. I had envisioned a little boy. I could deal with boys. Boys are easy. I have all brothers.

So, if, like me, at least once a day you watch your toddler do something bizarre and wonder, "Is that normal? That can't be normal?" then head on over there and join me and my girl as we muddle through toddlerhood together.
